Arrest made in home invasions
An Okmulgee man was arrested in connection with two home invasions Wednesday morning.
District court records detail the incident which led to Michael Anthony Reagan, III being taken into custody by Okmulgee Police.
On May 8, OPD was dispatched to the Quail Meadows Addition east of Okmulgee and a residence in the 2400 block of Old Morris Hwy. on a report of two home break-ins.
The Okmulgee police stopped a vehicle containing two juvenile and two men in the housing addition. The suspects were taken to police headquarters for questioning.
During the course of the investigation, officers learned a homeowner on the Old Morris Highway had awoke to a disturbance inside the home. The door had been kicked in and she encountered a subject inside the home. After the homeowner yelled at the subject, he then fled the residence.
The homeowner allegedly heard a gunshot and returned inside the home and called police. Upon their arrival, they found the door kicked in, and a footprint apparently left by the suspect.
In the second case, the homeowner in Quail Meadows observed an armed suspect inside his home, after the door was kicked in. Investigators also found a shoe print on the door of that home.
During their interviews with the various suspects, the police found evidence linking Reagan to the break-ins, including a stolen handgun that was fired at the first home.
Reagan is being held in the Okmulgee County Jail on complaints of First Degree Burglary (two counts), Burglary, Possession of Firearm During Commission of a Felony (two counts), Malicious Injury, Possession of Firearm While on Felony Probation, and Gang-Related Offense. His bond is set at $375,000 and is scheduled to appear in Okmulgee County district court at 2 p.m. on May 30.
